Bomberman Online sends the Dreamcast out with a bang, bringing this classic multiplayer title to Sega's now-defunct console for the first and last time. For the unfortunate few who missed out on past installments of Bomberman, the game puts players in a maze of an arena, arming them with timed bombs used to blow up boxes and other players. Players can kick the bombs down the narrow corridors for last-second surprises, and when several players all set explosive traps at the same time, things get hectic in a hurry. It's the perfect combination of action and strategy. The single-player game is surprisingly strong, with many levels and new gameplay modes packed with always-challenging objectives. The classic survival mode is supplemented with fun variations such as the Panel Paint Rule, in which players use explosions to "paint" the floor of the arena, and victory goes to the player who paints the largest area. The game only gets better when one to three other players join in. There's also an online mode for players with SegaNet accounts. Unfortunately, Sega now charges a monthly fee for its online service, and Bomberman simply isn't worth the subscription fee if it's the only Dreamcast game you plan to play online. If you can round up a few friends, however, this is one of the most explosive party games available for the system. --T.
